Good-Bad & The Ugly Samsung Blu-Ray bdp1200

coolnews, PriceGrabber
29 April 2007
  • Summary: HDMI compatibility issues! Samsung's HDMI plasma 2006 & 2007 have major issues. Samsung said their HDMI won't play Toshiba upconverts. They play fine on their component circuits. However, their own BDP1200 would not play on 4-different units from Best Buy which played perfectly on the above Sony & Hitachi. Three tech's could not get them to work even after changing the Samsung 5053 boards. Samsung just said they were all defective.
  • Pros: Great picture when it works on HDMI & Component. It works great on Component. Lots of hook-ups for audio for plasmas.
  • Cons: Bugs! Sound or Video can cut out & you have to disconnect the wires. HDMI quirks: It hates Samsung HPS5053 & HPT-5054 HDMI circuits. Runs fine on Sony KE42M1& Hitachi P50H401.
